Casting has been confirmed for the upcoming UK production of the Broadway musical.
The musical is set to make its UK debut at The Other Palace from the 12th February and is directed by Stephen Brackett. This production is set to star: Scott Folan, Blake Patrick Anderson, Renee Lamb, Millie O’Connell, Miracle Chance, Stewart Clarke , Eloise Davies, James Hameed, Miles Paloma, Christopher Fry and Eve Norris. Further company members are yet to be announced.
Based on the novel with the same name by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill features original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz. It includes songs such as More than Survive, Be More Chill and the hugely popular Michael in the Bathroom.
It’s just your atypical love story – a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!).
The musical originally premiered Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey in 2015, had a limited run, and Ghostlight Records released an original cast recording. In 2018, the show’s creators brought it back – resulting in an ‘off-Broadway production’ and this year’s Broadway run at the Lyceum Theatre.
As well as being directed by Stephen Brackett, the creative team for the production includes: choreographer Chase Brock, set designer Beowulf Boritt, costume designer Bobby Frederick Tilley, lighting designer Tyler Micoleau, sound designer Ryan Rumery and projection designer Alex Basco Koch. Musical supervision and orchestrations are by Charlie Rosen, music vocal arrangements by Emily Marshall and UK casting is by Will Burton.
Be More Chill will play at The Other Palace from the 12th February until the 3rd May. To book tickets click here or visit: Love Theatre.com, Encore Tickets, See Tickets, West End Theatre Breaks, Last Minute.com, From the Box Office or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
